May 26th 2011 4:06AM Yes, finally! ORD to LAX or SFO on VX! Love it.
Apr 24th 2011 3:00AM Maybe having a public/private partnership to fund the new museum will make it more palatable for all concerned. My problem is with the term "Latino." I am a third generation American of mostly Mexican descent. My parents and grandparents are from Texas and I was born in San Antonio.
I have always preferred the ethnonym "Hispanic" and as we were growing up in the midwest, my folks urged us to reply to questions about our heritage by stating that we were Americans of Mexican descent. Any new museum would help inform and enlighten visitors of their respective contributions and that would be good for all of us.
Mar 31st 2011 3:43AM When I got my passport last year it took less than four weeks to get it using regular first class mail. Another thing one might have to worry about is IF there is a Federal government shutdown it will stop processing of passport applications until Congress works it out the new budget.
Feb 18th 2011 3:32AM One can't leave out Berserkistan from G.B. Trudeau's Doonesbury comic strip whose president (Bmzklfrpz) just go mentioned today.
Jan 30th 2011 2:14AM I'm really into geocaching and after reading this article I now realize how convenient and handy geotagging will be. The only drawback that concerns me is that military folks should be careful, especially when using GPS-enabled phones when taking pix. You don't want to compromise certain missions and places. (http://www.military.com/military-report/af-issues-geotag-warning). Other than that, great idea.
Jan 17th 2011 3:40AM Don't try to get to your port of departure at the last minute. I've personally seen weeping families who missed the red-eye flight because of a missed connection, long security lines, or weather delays. I'd get there the day before and spring for a hotel room to avoid the possible stress.

Mar 11th 2010 1:20AM In Las Vegas, Virgin America (VX) uses Terminal 1 Concourse B, not the international terminal. Virgin Atlantic (VS) comes into Terminal 2 as do other international and Hawaiian flights. I used to work for US Air til last month and can't wait for Virgin to expand. Would love working for Virgin America.
